Diplomats Of Solid Sound

s/t (feat. The Diplomettes)

Record Kicks

Released: 28th April 2008 | 11 track funk album
Produced by Freestyle Records hottest property LACK OF AFRO aka Adam Gibbons, Record Kicks proudly presents the new album from Iowa City ambassadors of funk and soul, The Diplomats Of Solid Sound, featuring for the first time The Diplomettes. Having already cut 3 full length albums, Instrumental Action Soul (2001) on their own Prescription records and both Let's Cool One(2003) and Destination Get Down! (2005) on the mighty Estrus records. Each release saw the band growing in sophistication and depth as they ingested the sounds of 60s soul, R&B and deep funk. Cut to 2006 and The Diplomats became backing band to RnB/Soul legend Andre Williams. They recorded Aphrodisiac with 'Mr. Rhythm' which was released in 2006 on both Pravda records and Spanish label Vampisoul. The same year they asked 3 three gifted soul sirens (Sarah Cram, Katherine Ruestow, and Abigail Sawyer) aka the Diplomettes to join the band, which brings us bang up to date and to the album you have in your hands 10 tracks of irresistible funk and soul bombs ready to melt your heart or make you shake it on the dancefloor. As an added bonus, Lack Of Afro put in a bit of overtime in the studio to sprinkle his magic on Hurt Me So, giving it a skanking reggae feel whilst retaining the silky smooth vocals
